How to save money when eating out

  1. I totally agree. My roommate and I will go to a takeout like a Chipotle or Chick-Fil-A, go home and hang out. A lot of our best times have been just hanging out at our apartment, joking, and at times having serious conversations.

    1. Yup, take out sure is cheaper than sitting down, getting served, and paying a tip. When I went out to eat a lot in a previous life, I always enjoyed the take out trick.

  2. Fast food joints are better–IF you go to the right ones at the right times.
    Burger King: buy one whopper get one free type deals.

    I NEVER buy drinks out. I drink at home. That includes water (you should do an article on the biggest rip off of modern times: bottled water–It’s a Scam!).

    I simply can’t believe that you mention Chipotle and Panera Bread. Where I’m coming from these are gentrified Yuppie HQs! You wanna throw in Starbucks and WholeFoods while you’re at it? They go hand-in-hand.
    Chipotle is the gentrified ripoff replacement for Taco Bell. Panera Bread…well..the less said about that smartphone center the better!

    The best deal I do is an early bird special at a pseudo-local diner where I pay no more than $14 for an early lunch/dinner which includes salad or soup, dessert, beverage, and the meal itself, typically chicken parm with spaghetti. Once a week.

    And Groupon is another ripoff, too.
